View Full Version : Tracking Polygon Masks?

08 August 2004, 11:21 PM

Do you know how can I link an poly mask to a track to move like this tracker?

Im using a foreground video and want to add some buildings from a fixed picture as backdrop. Ive used "Track" to link the buildings to the video but when I try to add a mask to hide the base of the buildings it stays fixed. I would like to use the tracker to move the mask too... how ca I do it?

Thanks a lot! :)

Open your mask controls, and right click on the mask center controls to attach it to the tracker.. Viola! One tracked mask.

Works great Thanks a lot! ;)

This way I can link the poly to one tracker. Do you know how can I link it to all the trackers in the scene at the same time? (I have two trackers to control rotation)

Thanks again! :)

You would attach the polygon's center to the tracker steady or unsteady position, and attach the polygons angle to the trackers steady or unsteady angle.
